Description

A collection of classic, novel, and state-of-the-art methods for the study of cell migration in cultured cells, different model organisms, and specialized cells in normal development and disease. Highlights include basic assays that apply to all cell migration studies in vitro, assays in various model organisms, and assays for cancer cells, endothelial cells, and neurons both in vitro and in animal models. The protocols follow the successful Methods in Molecular Biology(TM) series format, each offering step-by-step laboratory instructions, an introduction outlining the principle behind the technique, lists of the necessary equipment and reagents, and tips on troubleshooting and avoiding known pitfalls.show more

Back cover copy

Central to the better understanding of both molecular mechanisms and disease, cell migration plays an essential role in a variety of biological processes and is now the subject of intense study using an array of powerful new technologies. In Cell Migration: Developmental Methods and Protocols, researchers describe in step-by-step detail their most successful techniques for studying the macromolecular machinery of cell movement. These readily reproducible protocols include a wide range of novel and state-of-the-art methodologies, as well as many classic methods, for use in cultured cells, different model organisms, and specialized cells in both normal development and disease. Highlights include basic assays that apply to all cell migration studies in vitro, assays in various model organisms, and assays for cancer cells, endothelial cells, and neurons both in vitro and in animal models. The authors also offer several novel approaches to the study of cell migration, as well as extensive coverage of cell migration studies in developmental and disease models. The protocols follow the successful Methods in Molecular Biology series format, each offering step-by-step laboratory instructions, an introduction outlining the principle behind the technique, lists of the necessary equipment and reagents, and tips on troubleshooting and avoiding known pitfalls. Comprehensive and highly practical, Cell Migration: Developmental Methods and Protocols offers researchers easy access to many readily reproducible techniques for the optimally productive investigation of cell migration in today's interdisciplinary experimental environment."show more
